Biographical/Historical note:
Homer Eachus Hoopes was born in Lima, Pennsylvania in 1848. He was a pharmacist in Media, Pennsylvania and member of a camera club that included A. C. Vroman. These photographs were probably made on one of the camera club's excursions and, as such, some of his photographs are similar to those of other club members.
